Dennis Wilson: Pacific Ocean Blue (Caribou)
Wesley Strick, Creem, November 1977
THIS BIG, BRAVE album — the only Beach Boys solo spin-off ever — is a small revelation. No one who has heard Dennis croak 'You Are So Beautiful' in concert could have anticipated Pacific Ocean Blue; it is the singular, even bizarre, statement of a John Lennon qua Santa Monica beach bum.
